Dundalk Dog Rescue

Giving unwanted dogs a second chance

Our Mission

To save the lives of dogs on the ” put to sleep” lists in pounds, to help rehabilitate and rehome them, and to promote responsible dog ownership.
Dogs end up at the pound for a number of reasons. A stray dog in the pound has 5 days to be reclaimed or re-homed (Control of Dogs Act, 1986). A dog surrendered by it’s owners may be euthanised immediately. Louth County Council does it’s best to rehome dogs but unfortunately due to the sheer volume of dogs entering the pound many dogs are listed for euthanasia to accommodate new arrivals.

How to Help

Donating could not be easier! You can send the text ‘DDR’ to 50300 or use our PayPal link. 

You can also contact us for our banking details to set up a direct debit.

We have a lot of dogs in foster and these dogs need a lot of TLC and help. You now have a chance to sponsor a dog.
It’s a once-off payment and you get a sponsorship pack.

 For the equivalent of just €1 per day, you could make a huge difference. Your sponsorship would help to cover the cost of cleaning, heating and general maintenance of the kennel, which could become a home to over 40 dogs per annum. You can choose to have your company logo displayed on the front door of the kennel for all visitors to see, during your year of sponsorship.

Some ideas include: coffee morning, sponsored parachute jump, sponsored run/walk, raffle… the list is endless.

It costs a lot to run the rescue and we have weekly costs such as dog food, poop bags and cleaning supplies we require to keep the centre running. You can buy from our Wish List or donate to us directly by clicking on the dropdown and selecting items you’d like to sponsor.

Foster carers are the cornerstone of the dog rescue. Become a foster carer and help out a dog in need during the most difficult time in their lives.
